Alessio Romenzi for TIME

We are honored to announce that this photograph by Alessio Romenzi, taken for TIME, was awarded first prize in the general news story category for World Press Photo.

14 February 2012 Al-Qusayr, Syria. A child mourns her father, who was kidnapped, tortured and killed by shabiha (government militias) with other two men. Their bodies were abandoned in a main street. The civilian unrest in the Syrian Arab Republic began in March 2011 and continues to affect people, particularly in the most vulnerable segments of the population. At least 60,000 people have been killed since uprising began, according to the United Nations (UN), and the number of Syrian refugees registered by the UN in the Middle East and North Africa has surpassed half a million. The situation continues to deteriorate in villages and cities in the country, leaving people without protection, shelter, food and water and facing fear every day.
